I’m Ariel Harper Nave

I live in the North End of Halifax, Nova Scotia. I have taught and practiced astrology internationally for more than 40 years. You can find me in the popular guide to Psychics and Mediums and Canada (or in the phone book).

I got into astrology to disprove it. But the first chart I did–my own–convinced me that there was something real here, a way to understand my purpose in the world and how to get along with others.  Something worth learning.

I’m still learning. Astrology gives us a language to describe our lives. I don’t know why it works, only that it does; and I believe that there is NOTHING sent us that we cannot handle if we know ourselves well enough. We have to be willing to do the work, and it helps to have tools and a guide.

Which is why I do what I do.

Sabian Symbols

Sabian Symbols are channelled images, one for each degree of the Zodiac. They begin with 1 Aries (0.01 degrees = 1 degree) and run through 30 Pisces–360 in all, as in any circle. They are the cornerstone of my work, because they accurately describe the themes of a chart.

Sabian Symbols were channelled by Elsie Wheeler, a gifted Californian medium, at the request of the visionary astrologer Marc Edmund Jones. On some unnamed day in 1925, Mr. Jones bundled Ms. Wheeler and her wheelchair-she was badly crippled by Rheumatoid Arthritis-into his Model A Ford and whisked her off to the beach at Balboa Park. Over a 3–day period, during which he showed her blank flash–cards and she described the images that came to her, they managed to generate the basis for Sabian astrology. Marc Edmund Jones wrote a book, The Sabian Symbols In Astrology, thereby creating an invaluable tool for modern astrologers..

Jones’ friend and astrological colleague, Dane Rudhyar, asked permission to expand upon the Symbols, which he laid out with Jungian overtones (he was himself a Jungian therapist of some note) in An Astrological Mandala: The Cycle of Transformations and Its 360 Symbolic Phases”  “This is the earliest, and to my mind, the best of the many publications built on Jones’s and Wheeler’s work.

Fast-forward to now: why use them? Why do I use them?  Because they work. Analyse the Sabian Symbols of any chart and its hidden potential is revealed.  These are the themes of our lives.
